Tis the season for things like eggnog, but when you have an egg allergy or you are pregnant you miss out on this holiday treat. Luckily there’s recipes like this out there, and after giving it a try it’s actually pretty good and you don’t miss the eggy taste in there. The only strange thing was the clumps of whipped cream in there. I think next time I would just keep it seperate and top the eggnog with it.
